Games from Warner Bros. Interactive, THQ and Capcom will soon be available on Origin, EA's digital PC platform.

Warner's Batman: Arkham City and THQ's Saints Row: The Third will kick things off in November, with more titles from the three third parties to follow in coming months.

"Since launch, we've had overwhelming support from both publishers and developers across the gaming industry, recognising Origin as an opportunity to deliver more of their great content straight to consumers across the globe," said EA's Origin VP David DeMartini.

"We're excited to welcome Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment, THQ and Capcom as the first publishers to offer their games via Origin."

THQ exec Terri Schiek added that the publisher "is excited to work with Origin and to offer players another new, innovative way to experience the over-the-top fun of Saints Row: The Third," and that it looked forward to "building our relationship with the Origin team, and to continue to deliver great content for the platform."

"When we met with the EA team and discussed their long-term vision for Origin, we were excited to lend our weight to their efforts," commented Capcom's Christian Svensson.

"We hope to expand our PC fanbase for our legendary brands on Origin."

Origin currently offers over 100 EA PC titles and has racked up six million users since it launched earlier this year. Warner, THQ and Capcom are the first third parties to jump onboard.
